The MacBrides : Logan and RJThe MacBrides : Logan and RJ by J.L. Petersen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The MacBrides Logan and RJ is the first J.L. Petersen book I have read. It is also appears to be book one of a coming series. I enjoyed the story of RJ and Logan. I felt that I was missing a prequel or something vital to this story so I could get to know Sarah and Clay better. As I like to read books in a series in order. Don't get me wrong its a wonderful stand alone book. I just like to get to know all my characters. This is more or less a love at first sight short romance.

Logan is the Oldest MacBride son of the family. He feels the need to protect his family from any harm and that includes his soon to be sister in law Sarah. He doesn't understand why a man can get so mushy over someone so quickly but seeing his brother Clay with Sarah he knows his brother has truly fell in love with the woman. He will not let anyone ruin this day for them and that includes Sarah's sister RJ who is finding it hard to find the time to help with the wedding. He will take care of that problem himself.

RJ is a extremely busy photographer. She works long hours with hour business even though she is self employed. So when her sister whom she practically raises calls and tells her she is getting married it takes every ounce of energy RJ has to try and rearrange this so she can be there for the most important day of her sister's life as well as help as much as she can with the planning and tight timeline her sister has given her. On top of all that she has to remind her sister that their family is not cut out for the happily ever after and nip this in the bud before her sister gets seriously hurt.

You all know those family members that have jealousy and spiteful tendencies well you will get to meet a few of them in this lovely novel. You also get to see two jaded people fall extremely hard extremely fast. I adored this lovely little read.

The MacBrides: Logan and RJ

by J.L. Petersen


GENRE: Contemporary Romance


Logan, the eldest of the MacBride clan, is thrilled at his brother Clay’s pending nuptials to Sandy. But when Sandy’s sister RJ arrives at the family’s ranch, Logan’s world is turned upside down. However, the sisters’ shared past has created scars and barriers against love testing Logan’s ability to push aside his need and patience to win RJ’s trust and ultimately her unwavering love.

Logan studied the woman. He’d bet his favorite horse she thought she was portraying herself as stoic. All he saw was a woman on the verge of breaking. Remorse filled him. He jumped in thinking he knew where the trouble was as he had done with virtually all his siblings since their father died. Now he wasn’t so sure he had approached this situation right. Straightening, he rubbed the back of his neck and tried again.
“Look, I may have jumped the gun a bit. There’s obviously something wrong that has both of you in tears. Can’t I help?”
Frowning at his words, RJ tried to determine if the man was playing her. She’d been burned before by family trying to manipulate her with caring to get what they wanted. Studying him, she captured his image as she would one of her pictures. Studying it for all the nuances not readily seen. Tall, lean with a broad chest, he stood with an ease many would envy. His hair was mostly covered by his cowboy hat, but black locks escaped at the back of his neck. His face was all angles with sharp cheekbones, strong forehead and a nose that looked like it had been broken along the way. His lips were firm and his eyes deep blue.
The eyes held her. There seemed to be sincerity in them but something else was pulling at her. When her mind grasped what that was, she sucked in her breath. Want. And, as if he realized she saw his wanting her, his eyes narrowed and became more intense. She pulled her gaze away quickly, and once again, turned towards the balcony doors. Gathering herself from the shock of his wanting her, she realized her body was tingling. Not good.
“I appreciate the offer, but it’s not something I want to discuss with a stranger.”
Logan was stunned to know she saw his desire for her. It only seemed to heighten his need to grab her and hold tight. When she spoke, he knew he needed a bit of space to process what was happening to him. “I can appreciate that. But don’t be hasty about leaving. Why don’t you join us at the ranch for dinner tonight? If you come about four, you and Sandy can have some private time to talk.”
